7/9/16 COOTHARABA VAUCLUSE - the Grand Champion Hereford bull from the Royal Queensland Show, has been sold to Glenlyon Rural Holdings for Phil & Lyle Yantsch for $30,000.
The Yantsch family also chose some Cootharaba females to join their herd. We wish them well with their purchases.
Due to unexpected demand from our clients who had rain earlier this year, we have sold out of Hereford bulls for he moment.
Paddock sales will continue and we will be back on the sale circuit on 2017.
Our apologies to our regular clients - if we can be of assistance please contact us.
Cootharaba Vaucluse was our only Hereford entry at the Ekka 16 this week and he did us proud by taking out the Senior and Grand Champion Hereford bull awards.
He is for private sale - please ring if you are interested.
We have purchased an exciting new sire battery this year at Wodonga, so look forward to some new genetics arriving next spring.
These bulls are a mixture of polled and horned genes and hopefully will do very well. The youngest of these was Avignon Red Cloud (by Domino 988W) , a young impressive horned bull out of a Monreid Dewdrop cow.
Red Cloud was a first prize winner at Wodonga National Show and Sale this year.
Overlooked in his class was Kaludah Gibbon, a scurred bull by Allendale Waterhouse(P). He was not overlooked by astute cattlemen, and we were forced to pay well !! He will do a great job here.
The horned bull RH Klassic by Charnock Jackall took our eye - and the judges. He won his class and went on to be awarded Reserve Senior Champion. He has great carcase figures and is out of a RH Cowboy Victoria cow.
The final bull is Wanrua Kingsland, a pure polled son of Wanrua Goldfinger out of Studbrook Maratana. An exceptionally long bull, he weighed 1118 kgs at 25 months, with great carcase figures also.
We eagerly await offspring from these bulls.
